ALL THE MANA! (12-Post Tron)

Legacy 12-post Colorless Tron

TacticsElf


Description

A colorless take on Proliferate- utilizing Contagion Engine or and Throne of Geth for massive token/counter generation. Spine of Ish Sah combos nicely with Throne of Geth and Dross Scorpion for recurring removal and added value. Hangarback Walker and Walking Ballista are great for sinking tons of mana into, for a huge payout.Thanks to everyone for the suggestions!

flintshadowrider I appreciate the feedback- and it works because if I need to attack I can sacrifice Ensnaring Bridge to Throne of Geth... It's just the budget now- I already own this entire list haha

Looks pretty fun, I have an artifact deck that also functions off of proliferate, start up the reactor maybe something there would interest you.

Nice deck, I really like it. I've play tested it several times and the combos are strong and powerful. The Chalice and the Walker are great additions to this deck to soak up all of the extra mana that is often available.

Have you thought about throwing in some poison creatures in the sideboard?

TacticsElf says... #7

captplayerlag I might go for Ichorclaw Myr or maybe a Necropede for bodied removal... Possibly a game changer. Thanks!

33 mana on turn 6... Okay. Putting this here so I can find this again - it's great.

NotSquishedYet Thanks! I know right? - there's so much to do as well. One of my favorite decks the I brewed, to date.

October 25, 2016 8:06 a.m.

+1!!! Ward of Bones!?!

CrazyGood-MTG9797 That's an excellent selection, right alongside Ensnaring Bridge. The way this deck plays out, I usually have more artifacts and creatures but it could provide a good line of defense before I combo off! Or is there something I'm missing?

October 30, 2016 3:30 p.m.

Not right off hand- let me think about this and I'll get back w/ you, but for now,Chalice of the Void!?! Thoughs?

October 31, 2016 4:01 a.m.

TacticsElf says... #13

CrazyGood-MTG9797 I do think that is a viable option for the deck. The only issue is, late game there's no way to cast it for a specific amount of mana, well unless I have some Glimmerpost maybe I'll have to look more into this as well. Thanks!

October 31, 2016 2:52 p.m.

Why wouldn't you be able to cast it for a specific amount of mana?

October 31, 2016 9:30 p.m.

TacticsElf says... #15

NotSquishedYet I looked back over it and the Tron pieces could enable lower mana casts. My bad, and thanks for making me look again!

November 1, 2016 1:34 p.m.

Mhm. Adding mana to your mana pool doesn't mean you have to spend it; that's something I didn't learn for a loooong time playing. Glad to be of help!

November 1, 2016 5:36 p.m.

TacticsElf says... #17

NotSquishedYet correct. I remember now because mana burn is no longer a thing.

November 1, 2016 8:05 p.m.

you should add in Astral Cornucopia

ticked-off-squirrel I seriously forgot about that card, it definitely deserves a 1 or 2 of in this deck. Thanks!!!

Key to the City enables you to get an infect creature through for poison win con. Just a thought.

If you're not worried about price, why not make the deck have infinite mana? Candelabra of Tawnos

Gigi_Year says... #22

When I was playtesting it, I found not having a sac outlet was an issue, as I had a turn 3 Spine easily, but no way to recur it. Arcbound Ravager for an aggressive one, or Krark-Clan Ironworks for the spirit of obscene mana count haha. Trading Post could also be a good card for options.

Otherwise, I love this deck and wanna put it together!

StarMonkey says... #23

I wouldn't bother with tron lands. Just play posts and ways to find them. They make way, way more mana.

Also, Candelabra of Tawnos

December 17, 2016 5:42 a.m.

TacticsElf says... #24

StarMonkey While I understand your point, my idea is to have a deck that combines two archetypes while remaining colorless- other ways to find Posts would be what? Ancient Stirrings? Because that requires colored mana. I do appreciate any constructive criticism though! Please elaborate.

MohenjoDaro says... #25

Oh, Extruder can function as a better Throne of Geth once you get the mana for it. Sac something for the +1/+1 counter then repeat an infinite amount of times in one move with your infinite mana from Candelabra of Tawnos.

January 10, 2017 9:59 a.m.

TacticsElf says... #26

MohenjoDaro I know! It's awesome, I have 4x Extruder in my paper version of this deck at the moment, along with the 4 Throne of Geth. Thanks for the input, though! I love hearing all of the ideas- I don't own a Candelabra of Tawnos so I won't be going infinite any time soon, but thanks for brining the combo to my attention.

January 10, 2017 6:24 p.m.

MohenjoDaro says... #27

I wouldn't expect anyone to actually own Candelabra of Tawnos but if you ever get one, it would be fun. Extruder just has so many combos. Dross Scorpion can also do some fun combos.

Metalworker? Goes infinite with staff of domination.

LeaPlath says... #29

I question the use of Tron lands, given their pay off is...you get 3 out in a specific order and you get 7 mana, otherwise the only tap for 1. Compared to Ancient Tomb and City of Traitors which tap for 2 on their own without need for set up.

Also why Astral Cornicopia and Helix pinacle out the side? You are already a slow deck that wins slowly. Adding a slow wincon that wins slowly doesn't help your game plan.

Have you looked at actual mud decks for an idea of what sort of stuff lets you power out artifacts quickly?

February 16, 2017 5:54 a.m.

TacticsElf says... #30

LeaPlath I use Tron because it's a theme within the deck- it's 12-Post Tron, for the maximum amount of mana. It's not meant to be really competitive, just a fun quirky deck idea I had. While I know Ancient Tomb and City of Traitors are efficient at getting more mana earlier- I like the idea of mashing 3 different archetypes.

Helix Pinnacle is in the side as a win-con because of the massive amounts of mana produced. Astral Cornucopia could be replaced by some other mana rock I suppose- that's why it's a work in progress!I have looked at a few MUD decks, and thats why I added Staff of Domination and have considered Metalworker.

I appreciate the input, though! Thanks!

February 18, 2017 5:09 p.m.

LeaPlath says... #31

But...Staff of Domination is only in MUD because it combos with Metalworker to generate infinite mana with 3 artifacts in hand.

DarkEclipse18 says... #32

I might not play modern but this looks like so much fun haha, I am artifact lover at heart, ever since Daretti EDH came out, now aboard my Breya train. This deck gave me inspiration to adjust my Breya deck to run X artifacts cheap to get tons of colorless [or colored] mana easily :3

March 9, 2017 6:33 a.m.

TacticsElf says... #33

DarkEclipse18 Glad that I could help! I love wacky and off the beaten path type decks.This happens to be my favorite deck, and I hope to own it one day. I'm missing a few key pieces.

March 9, 2017 9:33 a.m.

try out a combo that I'm rather fond of, in ways - Candelabra of Tawnos, Mycosynth Lattice and Clock of Omens. You tap all of your lands to add a bunch of mana, then you pay X (number of lands you have) to untap them, then tap two to untap candelabra and the process is endless, giving you an infinite/infinite Walking Ballista or Hangarback Walker to end out the game. This also works with contagion engine, giving you infinite counters (Clock of Omens is artifacts, that's why you use Mycosynth Lattice to make lands artifacts too). You could also splash in some blue or white to lock out everything - Mycosynth Lattice and Stony Silence or just Blue Sun's Zenith to mill out the opponent like kci eggs
